About the show: The Franks and another Jewish family must hide
from the Nazis who are exterminating Jewish citizens during the
Holocaust. They try to co-exist peacefully in a secret annex hidden
behind a bookcase in Otto Frank's office. They must not make noise or
leave the annex for fear of being discovered. Only Miep Gies and Jan
Kraler are allowed to visit; they help the families by bringing them
needed items and outside news. Anne keeps a diary recording the
trials and tribulations the experience, as well as her own coming of
age in a tiny room surrounded by frustration, selfishness, and fear.
